SL2 SHORT REVIEW
Good news for beginner/aspiring photographers. If you’re looking to put down the smartphone and take the next step up in image quality, one that includes the flexibility of using all sorts of different lenses, Canon has updated their most affordable DSLR.
The new EOS Rebel SL2 takes over for the aging SL1, adding a slew of improvements, including the world’s fastest Dual Pixel CMOS AutoFocus system, a new Vari-Angle touchscreen LCD, improved low light performance, higher video frame rates (up to 1080/60p HD), annnnnnnnnd three different types of wireless technologies.
That’s right, with Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth, it doesn’t matter what smartphone you have — you’ll be able to connect it to the SL2 and use your phone as a remote control OR to transfer images directly onto your phone and effortlessly share them all on Facebook, Instagram, whatever you want.
Oh, and if you’re nervous about buying a DSLR, don’t be. The menus on the back of this camera walk you through each new mode helping you get to that next level of photography faster.
With a 24.5 MP APS-C sensor, 49 Autofocus points with face tracking, up to 25,600 ISO and a fully adjustable screen, the Canon EOS Rebel SL2 might just be the best introductory DSLR on the market.

SL2 ISO PERFORMANCE
Here’s a quick look at the Canon EOS Rebel SL2’s ISO capabilities. For those who are new to photography, higher ISO settings on your camera allow you to shoot in darker scenarios without motion blur… but you lose color, contrast, and fine details while adding digital noise. What you’ll see here is that the SL2 does a fine job up to ISO 6400, but images will be noisy at ISO 12800 and above. Usable for social media, but too noisy for prints.
Also worth noting for beginners, all of these images were captured in Aperture Priority mode, which is a helpful mode for those who want more manual controls, but may not know how to set the appropriate shutter speed. What does that mean? If you want blurry backgrounds (aka bokeh), you’ll want the widest aperture (smallest number) possible for your lens and focal length. If you want everything in focus, you’ll want a narrower aperture (larger numbers).
